CMAA - Construction Management Association of America

The Construction Management Association of America is North America’s only organization dedicated exclusively to the interests of professional Construction and Program Management.

The Association was formed in 1982. Current membership is more than 11,000, including individual CM/PM practitioners, corporate members, and construction owners in both public and private sectors, along with academic and associate members. CMAA has 28 regional chapters and 50 student chapters at colleges and universities nationwide. 

CMAA presents two national gatherings annually: The Owners Leadership Forum in the spring, and the National Conference & Trade Show in the fall. Professional Development programs, including instructor-led courses, self-paced online programs and webinars, are offered throughout the year.

CMAA and its Regional Chapters offer the opportunity to students at colleges and universities across the nation to form Student Chapters. Currently, there are 48 student chapters. Each chapter has a faculty advisor and a student board of directors. Interested parties can contact the student chapters to learn more about their CM program and the chapter organization and activities.

"Construction Management is a relatively young profession that has already had a profound impact on how America plans and constructs its built environment. That influence is certain to expand as the future brings new imperatives, from tighter budgets to greater environmental sustainability."
